Local Favorite: Parton's Deli
Tourist destinations are packed full of restaurants; most of them being the well known chain restaurants that can be dined in all over the country. However, every city has the smaller restaurants that are usually out of the hustle and bustle of the city life. These restaurants are local favorites and mom and pop establishments that don't make it into the guidebooks and vacation brochures. Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and the other surrounding areas of the Smoky Mountains have several well-kept secrets that the locals love.
These establishments in the Smoky Mountains are often a great place to go and learn about the local culture, as well as eat some of the best local food. Most of the establishments have more reasonable prices than the chain restaurants in town. The service is above and beyond in these family owned establishments and the food is worth coming back for over and over again.
Because there are so many local favorites we will pick a featured restaurant each month and share it with our readers. This months featured restaurant is Parton's Deli.
